Platon Lerma Scholarship Recipients




We appreciate the generosity of our SHAA sponsors

DCET  is very proud to present four Annual scholarships to outstanding students who are investing in their education. We know that education is the key to success  because it opens doors for people of all backgrounds, and it expands the human mind with knowledge. The vast amount of knowledge gained through education prepares individuals to solve problems, teach others, function at a higher level and implement transformational ideas. Without education, one’s chances for securing a good job and ascending to a higher economic and social status are often limited.
